Law & Order-themed art show at Gallery Meltdown

A few of my favorites from the upcoming Law & Order-themed art show at Gallery Meltdown curated by Brandon Bird:

For twenty years, the fictional prosecutors and detectives of "Law & Order" have navigated literally hundreds grotesque tragedies, moral quandries, and improbable crimes.

Each piece is an artist's interpretation of a one-line episode summary from the DirecTV program guide. Like the series that inspired them, they are sometimes straightforward and sometimes offer a twist; sometimes they contain no easy answers, and sometimes they are just plain goofy.

"These are Their Stories" will run July 24 to July 30, 2010 at Gallery Meltdown, 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046.

Join us for a cake & ice cream reception July 28 at 8:00 pm.
